The top model has been very quiet since she announced her pregnancy. On Instagram, she finally broke the silence and revealed her baby bump to the delight of her fans.
It’s official! Gigi Hadid is expecting a baby girl this autumn. Bella Hadid’s sister decided to stay off Instagram at first, but she finally decided to reveal a ‘no filter’ glimpse behind the scenes of her life this past Wednesday on her Instagram stories.
‘There's my belly, y’all!'
In her story, the 25-year-old top model took the opportunity to justify her absence from social media over recent weeks:
Obviously, my pregnancy is not the most important thing going on in the world. That’s a reason that I felt that it’s not really something that I need to share apart from with my family and friends. Obviously, a lot of people have lost lives due to coronavirus, that was in the beginning of quarantine and still happening.
‘Black Lives Matter’, the final straw
On top of the COVID-19 pandemic, the American top model also explained another reason she took a break from Instagram:
Into the reemergence of the BLM movement, and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that. […] I just don’t want to worry about waking up every day during my pregnancy and worry about having to look cute or post something.
An emotional confession that shone a spotlight on this top model’s philosophical reflections in these incredibly trying times.
When the baby is born, will Gigi Hadid shine a spotlight on her life as a new mother like the Kardashian family has previously done?
Stay tuned to find out.
